Holtz, a supporter of Trump's unsuccessful bid for re-election, drew a rebuke from Notre Dame President John Jenkins after the former coach described Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden as a "Catholic in name only" during his speech at the 2020 Republican National Convention. Holtz slammed now President-elect Joe Biden and other Democrats, claiming they was "Catholics in name only" due to their willingness to support abortion, Politico reports.
